what a gem of a restaurant! Really imaginative and delicious food and an interesting and well thought out wine list. The service was great- efficient, friendly, spot on! We had a super evening and will definitely be back.

I haven't been in for about 18 m (as I don't yet live in Bath permanently) and food and service has always been absolutely spot on. I needed a late lunch with a visiting friend yesterday and suggested Circus - as expected, just perfect again. She liked too. Thank you

We had not eaten at the circus before but our hotel recommended it. We were greeted pleasantly at the entrance. The staff were courteous and friendly throughout. The problem was the tough flat iron steak. I have eaten these in the States and they were tasty and edible. I ordered to be cooked as the chef recommended.When it arrived it looked a well cooked juicy thing but I found it extremely chewy and although I chewed and chewed the sinew mostly would not break down. I had to swallow lumps and one piece was so difficult I was forced to return it to the plate. I ate less than half of the steak and when the waitress came for the plate I told her and she said well it's a flat iron steak and apologised and said she would tell the chef. We had desserts and they were well cooked, the pear dish was particularly good. We did not challenge the full price bill when it came but I would have thought my returned plate with a large amount of steak still on it with a chewed lump I could not swallow, and waitresses comments from us might have encouraged someone in the kitchen to try to cut a piece to confirm what we had said front of house was correct. Steaks simply should not go out when they are so indigestible.

Was a wonderful dining experience, delicious food and wine in a warm relaxed setting downstairs, we had brilliant service and two birthday suprise desserts (we were three of us on a trip to Bath to celebrate two of our birthdays)

We had a great evening and ate far too much (some of us tried not to but failed dismally to resist the temptation!). Thank you very much.

I picked the Circus to celebrate my husband’s birthday during a trip to Bath. We had an outstanding evening, with perfectly cooked, beautifully presented food, excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Outstanding food with excellent service! We love this restaurant and have visited twice now when staying in Bath. The duck main course from the autumn menu this time was exquisite, in-fact probably the best duck course I’ve ever eaten. Well done! We will be back.

This was our first visit to Bath and in fact to England. I booked The Circus on line from the U.S. before our trip based on the excellent TripAdvisor reviews. It did not disappoint in the least. Both the cuisine and service were excellent with a lovely ambiance. .

An excellent restaurant. Service and food quality were first class at a very reasonable price. With so many eating establishments to choose from in Bath, I'm glad I came here and would recommend without hesitation.

Book downstairs for a more intimate evening meal. Or at street level for a bit more “bistro” Excellent evening- thank you!
